If There's A Coalition, Who'll Be In It?
WITH most political pundits predicting that the next government will be a coalition, William Hill are offering odds about which Party may team up with Labour or theTories.
Hills offer 4/1 that the Lib Dems will be in coalition wit the Conservatives again - 11/2 that they'll opt for Labour. But it is a 9/2 chance that the SNP will be involved in a coalition government, while Ukip are 7/1 top do likewise, and the Greens a 20/1 shot.
'Puters are convinced we'll have another Hung Parliament - and one of our customers has staked the biggest ever general Election stake of £200,000 on it happening - he stands to make a profit of £44,444 if he is right' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
With a Hung Parliament probable, William Hill offer 9/2 that there will be two General Elections during 2015.
David Cameron has yet to confirm that he wll take part in a multi Party (4 or more) tv debate before the General Election, and William Hil offer 3/10 that he will, 12/5 that he will not.
